|Dot9 - Collaborations - [dot9.03] - canc3r, clarion, mute, nool, pinkj, setzer|
In late 2000, 5 canadians and 4 americans formed dot9 to bring their music together as a collective. Independently the styles varied in large degrees, but often they would come together or team up with another member to write songs or to explore sound and rhythm techniques. Dot9 stopped in March, 2003. This compilation contains nine examples of that union. They are the favorites of the abandoned and scattered collaborations of dot9...

|Proswell - Dryrot - [one05] - proswell|
A 45 minute continuous mix from Proswell, ft. b-sides, out takes, new material, and a few favorites from his sophomore release Carrot Dossier (columbo theme, tar and atari, rat news) on m3rck records. Even with this relation, Dryrot is easily a release with its own identity. Finding time between releases at m3rck and running Inpuj, he explores the laid back and driving sound that's heard between the cracks of Carrot Dossier and often strays from the sound that defined that album (as is heard wit...

|Lomov - Ecru [one010] - Lomov|
These bites of electro, techhouse, idm and ambience by Axel Bergk further explore the minimalist corners of One. Often exploring disharmony made naturual by under-pinned hooks, subtle changes, atmospheric textures, and repetition. Just shy of an hour, Ecru is a long player that with patient listening reveals a comfortable coherence. While being mostly minimal and beat driven it doesnt fail to bring up emotion or experience thats important to every release selected here...

|Mizati - Conocer - [one06]|
Mizati came along as a surprise treat, earlier managing to slip under many of our radars. like most of Mizati's music, these tracks are part of a live recording session and the inspiration of the moment shines through. From the opening track 'caballo' to the closing 'sediento' Mizati explores a range of styles, but manages to keep it all together. Conocer itself means 'on the road'. A theme is presented of the old west and the desert, but by no means is the sound slaved to a single interpretatio...

|Rivel - Sum - [one021] - Rivel|
If sum is defined as the equal of two parts, Nathan McCoy's (Rivel) new EP is the product of clean, focused production and mindful harmonic mastery. Sum conjures up images of years past, those innocent but haunting moments that creep up in the back of our minds that cannot be, ironically enough, summed up easily. Instead of letting complexity get the best of him, Rivel's approach to IDM is refreshingly simple and well crafted...

|Recue - Between Stations - [one026] - Riku Annala|
Between Stations is the long anticipated debut EP from Recue (Riku Annala). Already known by many for his live performances with partner and sonic ally Bad Loop and a recent remix for If:Then:Goto - the interest in a solo release from Recue has been building for quite awhile. Heavy and equal elements of ambient, dub, idm, soul, and even techno ever present in Recue's music. Rhythms trip around everywhere over strong melodies and together carry a persistent groove along currents of ragged arpeggi...

|Partikel - Strukturer (Omstrukturerad) - [one015] - Partikel|
Strukturer was the lone release from the short lived netlabel imprint, Arkitekton. We loved it so much that upon the news of Arkitekton folding we hounded Jimmy Svensson aka Partikel to rerelease it somewhere - somehow. Lo and behold, here it is given new life. Including 2 new tracks and 3 new remixes from some favorite members of the One camp. This beat heavy excursion into minimal techno has a driving confidence and strong prescence with which it excells in theme and seperates itself from othe...

|Relative Q - Beauty and Her Broken Things - [one02] - Relative Q|
A familiar face from the staple Chill productions release group and our 101 compilation, we're excited to have 'relative q' drop his latest on us. All the elements are here and well presented. The overall harmony strikes one with a rise in reflection and memory, pain and triumph, failure and success. A good example of electronic music's instrumental replacement of the vocalist where melody and accentuations seemly influence memory and emotion more than mere words can.....

|iua - eee ooo ahh - [one025] - Mike Shusta|
iua brings an electronic and softer side of shoe-gazing walls of sound across all lines. Bright and hazy baths of noise delivering distinct vocals and melodies, a graceful slow motion momentum reiterated by smooth rhythms, airy instrumentation, and brief moments of breezy noise pop. The title - derived from the 3 common sounds of speech spanning all languages - perhaps lends itself to Mike Shusta's vocals which are not in all instances phonetically cohesive or clear, yet leaving no question of o...

|Emil Klotzsch - Feinquisit - [one028] - Emil Klotzsch|
Emil marks his return to One with more of the material in which we first got to know him - a spazzy blend of experimentation, disjointed rhythms and instrumentation. His playful but melanchoic spirit brings half-smiles to its listeners through an equally schizophrenic approach to mood and style as perhaps displayed best with his return to vocals on 'geteiltes sein'. Feinquisit (while offering glimpses of what will and what was to come on Sandkorn) manages to follow roads we haven't witnessed fro...

|Makunouchi Bento - Trcutu - [one020] - Makunouchi Bento|
This latest offering from Makunouchi Bento is a special one indeed - interpretation of and sound excursion into a few of their favorite classical compositions by such powerful and original composers as Erik Satie, Anton Arensky, Maurice Ravel., they hold nothing back while adapting them within the Mabento realm. With its twists of melancholy, nostalgia, and even childlike amusement - Trcutu manages to hold onto a genuine historical and aesthetic interest found within some of the originals...

|Plosive - One Remixes - [one027] - Aaron McCammon|
Collaboration has always been an important factor here at One - whether it's through music, technology or artwork. In this spirit the return of Plosive brings us a showcase of covers, mixes and overhauls of many favorite releases from the past couple of years - including reworkings of Bad Loop, Jack Haberfield, Iua, Emil Klotzsch, Recue, Paranerd and Partikel. With much of the source material in hand, they have been made his own through complete reinterpretation - lending to their individuality ...

|Paranerd - Cold reflect - [one014] - Paranerd|
Hailing from Canada, Paranerd's songs individually reveal themselves like being lost in specific thought. Continuously reflective themes rather than catchy clips with the occasional exclamation point. Unraveling the most vulernable moments. While many electronic musicians utilize repetition and hooks, he has an introverted and personal approach to writing that puts in you a position of wondering where the layers of melody or mood will go next...

|Transient - Over the River and Through the Woods - [one016] - Transient|
Transient has developed his own niche blend of downtempo mixed with, well, everything else. Often sample heavy, he skitters around in time conjuring images of worn vhs home videos, dark rooms and smoke filled lounges -- yet managing to salvage a modern and personalized sound by refusing to surrender to the confines of the retrospective.. Each song is a unique experience, but the release remains coherent as a whole...
